in this race. i was very struck that cnn really found its groove with john mccain on the message board and you could find the information you were looking for. i was really struck by margaret hoover, a political columnist who is so beautiful that people think she's not going to be smart and every time she speaks you think, "while coming is she's smart -- "wow, is she smart?" what are some institutions that really blew away? >> i would say, going back to mine original theory, sasha eisenberg and his book, "the victory allowed-- lap." hot he said it was going to come down to turnout and techniques, so i give him a lot of credit. >> is maybe a little controversial, but late silver's, the year of the polls. he nailed it. -- nate silvers nailed it. is going to be a player. he could be a republican supreme court nominee if not a candidate for president. >> tell us more about cruz. >> is the third of former supreme court clerks to be serving in the senate along with blumenthal and lee. he is one of the smartest politicians lie have never covered and he is one of the best debaters i have never seen. y
live from senator john mccain and lindsay graham on this show yesterday. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> and in a moment that felt much more 2008 than 2012, senator john mccain took to the senate floor telling the president that he's responsible for benghazi. the senator doubling down on the "today show" this morning. >> i'm not taking anybody on. we owe it to their families. we owe to its to other americans. for the president of the united states for two weeks to deny that that was the case is a coverup or incompetence. either one of the two. >> joining me now is capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. what are you hearing about the exact focus of the meeting? some are beginning certain briefings yesterday. >> well, thomas, there's an effort here to try to separate out what has been a complicated and troubling society of facts with respect to what happened with general petraeus and leaving the cia. all of
of improvement. the fact is, talk radio continues to thrive. while moderate republics like john mccain and to some extent mitt romney continue to lose presidential elections. and while the tea party has backed some terrible candidates. richard murdock, todd akin and christine o'donnell, it also made the 2010 g.o.p. route possible. grass roots conservatives helped elect senators marco rubio in florida. ted crews in texas and this time deb fisher in that nebraska senate race. where is the evidence that proabortion or pro-gam gay marriage or pro-amnesty but fiscally conservative candidates are are the solution to the g.o.p.'s problem? moderates like scott brown and charlie summers just lost their senate races in massachusetts and maine. both blue states. would their type of republic have won in conservative red states? of course not. until more liberal republicans start winning their races, why should they dictate the terms of a new g.o.p. agenda? yes, republics, of course they need to attract more single women and latinos. but pandering isn't the answer. good policy and good politics is.
that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this point. >> i'm still nice. >> laura: if you can't get the mormon vote in the same numbers as john mccain, something was really wrong with this campaign. and i like him very much. i think ann is delightful. i love the bushes. these people are wonderful people. but being wonderful and running a great campaign maybe are two different things sometimes. >> one of the problems that the conservatives have. they continue to want a perfect candidate and they are not going to get one. >> laura: sure. >> that's one of the reasons they don't get a perfect candidate well i'm not going to help anybody. when conservatives will give money and they will will actually give their energy and they will accept the fact that whatever candidate they support will have some flaws he won't be perfect. this, i think pushed to perfection ends up leading to anything but the -- you think that's what it was? a push to perfection we had major problems
john mccain as secretary of state. martha: what you think about that? >> i like john mccain very much. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from general david petraeus in the coming days. there is more to be told and we will get to the bottom of it. we will see whether susan rice continues to stand by as we move forward in the process. bill: 12 minutes away, we have jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." martha: and we are awaiting a news conference on the att
of months ago, out of 11 swing states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor --
that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand border issues. but i do think this border issue. promises, promises, promises. folks will be upset including white working class voters. martha: you think back to the moments along the way in these elections and when the turning points were. my mind goes back to marco rubio who was about to put forth some legislation that was very similar to what -- a policy that would literally came out of the lips of president obama days later. right before president obama put out his feeling that people who came under the age of 16 and those ramifications that he put out there, right before he did that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had
to stay. john mccain was criticized when he ran for president for his more open perspective on how to approach this problem. he didn't get anywhere with that. he lost his election as well. what are the lessons here. >> the first lesson is the president is not the only one who can evolve on an issue. martha: the president said he had evolved on the issue of gay marriage. >> i think it is a significant fire. a signal that maybe we should be open. this will come up in the next congress regardless. certainly at least tone has to be moderated if not policy. and i think that is an important part of reaching out to a new electorate that is growing. there are many people in the republican party such as george w. bush and john mccain who put more politically on the line for comprehensive immigration reform more than many democrats if not most of them. i think there are folks in the party who can listen to things like that. there are ted cruz in texas for instance who is not for amnesty but knows the issue of immigration and border concerns. you have got jeff flake in arizona understand bord
. >> bill: you think they were more enthusiastic for john mccain. >> in some case, yes. he had been around a lot long. he also had the military. do you know in virginia romney and barack obama split the active military vote? now, how do you explain that? >> bill: i don't. i can't explain it at all. the things that i can can explain are the entitlement culture it, obviously going to vote for president obama. if you are on the other end of that. obviously. but, i can't explain, for example, single women other than the abortion issue i just can't imagine it's driving those numbers to that extent. why do single women not like the republic party for what reason. >> they haven't liked it for 15 or 20 years. >> bill: married women do. single women don't. explain it to me. >> nothing the republic party put forward that attract single women. >> bill: that's not. >> tell me what it is. >> bill: that's oversimplyification. have you got two women. both 32 years old. one single, one is married. the married one statistically likes the republicans and the single one doesn't. why? >> why because they thin
of the republican party. in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of the latino vote. four years later john mccain got 31%. now 27% for mitt romney. to be steadily losing votes in an expanding demographic is a recipe for failure. florida senator marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants and a republican suggests the problem is both substantive. >> it's hard to make an argument to people that think that you want to deport their grandmother. >> decisive in 2012. 53% of the votes this year were cast by women who favored president obama by ten points. >> my wife is a democrat, and she was so close to voting for mitt romney, but then, you know, murdock and akin opened their mouths, and we sent them running back to the democratic party because they think we're nut where i. >> actually, married women tended favor mitt romney, but single women, a growing part of the population, went 3-1 for the president. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> republicans have two years until the midterm to try to shed a little of the old off the grand old party and reach out to a quickly cha
. >> the center of republican philosophy embodied by george bush's attempt to do it and john mccain was, reasonableness on immigration. >> and john mccain and ted kennedy came close to having an immigration deal. >> the republicans need to do a major across-the-board etch a sketch on their -- >> on the immigration issue that's one issue where many on the religious right would come on board because churches, evangelical churches, catholic churches, want to resolve this issue for their own reasons. >> to curt's point it needs to be a wholesale rethinking of the party, not just on the imin i gration piece, but people of color have been talked about and treated and legislated against. the women's issue,s, not just choice but reproductive health, contraception and gay marriage, and that is going to be hard with a socially conservative base that is no the a big fan of a women's right to choose or gay marriage. >> analogous of what the democrat hassed to do after a decade or two after losin losing 'lxxxlosing '84 and '88 to have a more center party and bill clinton. you have to get beaten more
the republican party from behind. when you support comprehensive immigration reform like john mccain did but then refuse to do it when president obama is in the white house, when you have the nominee of the party, mitt romney, saying people should self deport. so their house and go back to mexico. you cannot win latino votes when you make war against them . what againstin california has happen nationwide. -- what has happened in california happened nationwide. i am not sure how much credit arthur davis has. i was disappointed when he left the party and supported mitt romney. i did not buy his reasons for doing so. i would disagree with him on this. i do not think republicans should write off the african- american party at all. they are talking about jobs, improving the economy. if they are willing to save medicare and social security are going to stay, they can get african-american votes. to write them off as arthur davis suggested i think would be a colossal mistake. host: we will get to your calls in just a moment. you can also send us a comment on facebook or twitter. what surprised y
states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor -- sullivan in wyoming, s
years. john mccain got 31% four years ago, george w. bush got 40% in 2004. exit polls show latinos are becoming a solid democratic voting black. in 2004, 42% of latino voters called themselves democrats and 31% returns. that moved to 51% democratic, to 21% republican. bill o'reilly had a warning for fox viewers last night. >> just a changing country. the demographics are changing, it's not a traditional america anymore. and there are 50% of the voting public who want stuff. they want things. and who is going to give them things? president obama. he knows it and he ran on it. and whereby 20 years ago, president obama would have been defeated by an establishment candidate like mitt romney. the whitish willment is now the minority. >> unioning me now is joy reid. how bad are you feeling for the white establishment tonight? >> tragic. >> bill o'reilly and the white establishment are founding their powers fading. >> yeah, it's fading. i will concede to bill o'reilly absolutely the the minorities who are taking over the country want stuff. they want to not have voter id laws, they want t
million less vote this is year than he did in 2008. mitt romney got almost 3 million votes less than john mccain did. this election, you could come up with a lot of arguments as to why mitt romney didn't win. i thought he left it all in the playing field. i thought he did as well as he could, given the circumstances. but the truth of the matter is, we couldn't come up with enough votes to win. and if you analyze this election, you can come up with 100 reasons why mitt romney lost. i'm looking towards 2016 and how can we, the gop, continue to be competitive and how can conservatives get their message across. i'm trying to tell you, to echo what patrick said. the first thing you have to do is show up. we didn't show up in the black community. we didn't show up enough in the hispanic community. we dedicated resources too little too late. and we need a long-term plan that dedicates enough resources to become competitive, knock on the door and do the things that we need to in the community. my comments about what won or lost this election are different than the comments about what's required t
. mitt romney got almost 3 million votes less than john mccain did. this election, and you could come up with a lot of arguments as to why mitt romney didn't win. i thought he left it all on the playing field and he did as well as he could give ten circumstances. but the truth of the matter is that we couldn't come up with enough votes to win. >> patrick, it is not just about the candidate or putting a candidate that has a, you know, hispanic last name or the minority on the ticket. you said that you not only had that problem, but you have -- >> an angry white man problem. >> angry white man problem. >> i don't want to discredit marco rubio for just saying that he is and up and comer, because he is hispanic, and he is up and comer to look into the camera and express a conservative viewpoint without being angry or saying the word rape quite frankly. he connects with people and the fact that he is a cuban america american is a plus, but it is not the reason that he is a up and coming. >> explain angry why man? >> the gop has a problem of getting candidates in line and put them up and say i
like john mccain and hatch have to run far to their right just to keep their offices. this is very perilous for our country. i'm looking for us to go back where you had guys like ronald reagan and tip o'neill who reached across the aisle. >> friends in the newt gingrich second term worked very well together. >> i think we have the right president for that. but we need the right leadership coming out of congress that's going to rise up to the challenge and bring our nation together. most of us in the country are not on the margin. most of us, however we identify, republican or democrat, we have so much more in common than we do apart. that's where we hope that our government will follow where the people are. >> that's so true. cory booker, great to see you. better luck on the ground. appreciate you coming in. >>> coming up next, how the republican party lost a battle. we'll go head to head on that question. questions from bing elections. do you know where your polling place is? maybe somewhere around my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it
mid 40s, you win elections. look at the way the message is taken in different community, john mccain in arizona has polled in the 70s with hispanics. jeb bush did well in florida, governors in nevada and new mexico. it is not amnesty or immigration, but it is being incluesive and talking about economic opportunity. the majority of hispanics want to be mainstream americans. i think a lot of people lose sight of that. >> i think jose, also, people like marco rubio, susana martinez, not just ethnically because they are in tune, they approach issues in a substantive, passionate -- >> compassionate. >> george bush was a compassionate conservative, but he delivered barack obama to the white house. so i think at that point -- [overlapping dialogue] >> he was very compassionate and he ended up being extremely unpopular. it can't be just that. you have to have a message that is all inclusive. >> no one can deny. >> yeah. >> no one can deny he won big elections in texas and he won the presidency twice. >> but he couldn't speak at his own convention because he was so unpopular. >> before we go

proportion than john mccain, 71-27. we lost agents by 73% to 27%. bob dole won, a lot of people don't remember that but we are in a position now where we have got to, through differences in policies, differences in tone and differences and candidates, reach out in a way that we have never reached out before we will not be successful in the national party. >> is it possible if significantly improved up public performance with minority of voters without changing the party on immigration? >> no, it's not. it's not the most important issue among hispanics. the economy is the most important issue among hispanics but positions on immigration and more importantly toned on immigration sends a tremendous message to hispanics. to borrow a phrase from my friend todd harris, harsh tones about hispanics are like smoke. you know it's going to kill you but you do it anyway. the time is come for republicans to slap a patch on, break the habit or we are going to die. >> , do you agree, are republicans looking for hispanic voters and saying okay a lot of social conservatives they are less pro-governm
